Company info

Ground Designs was formed in 2006 by Gary Joynes, who has over 40 years’ experience in the trade of complete landscaping. Dean, who has worked for Gary as his right-hand man for over ten years, now owns and runs the business. 

We are keen to provide an outstanding service to our customers, whatever the size of the job, from total design makeovers to general garden maintenance.

Ground Designs operates as one dedicated, professional landscape team.

This ensures you benefit from first class service and expertise from start to finish.

We concentrate on doing one job at a time which means we get booked up very quickly, so please bear this in mind when planning work in your garden.

Demand for our services is increasing and lead-in times can be up to five months, but Customer Feedback confirms we are worth waiting for.

As always, you get what you pay for. If you want a first class job allow plenty of time so that you receive the best workmanship and customer service.

For small scale jobs we may be able to fit them in between larger projects, so please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements.

We look forward to your call...

Laying patio and building planters

Verified Review

Would recommend Dean Owen and Luke to anyone who is looking for ideas and how to design the garden Dean was very professional throughout. He was very helpful and recommended some good ideas. Luke and Owen worked really hard for the two weeks that they were at our property. They showed respect. Very welcome and very approachable. They were not the cheapest company but we were glad we went with them in the end. Even when we changed our minds throughout the project they were happy to comply with our wishes we were very pleased with the end product I would definitely use them in the future .

Bamboo removal and fences/gates

Verified Review

Excellent job well done by Dean, Luke and Owen, very happy with the results, was a large bamboo removal job requiring mini digger, 5 tons of soil removed to dig down and remove all traces, fences replaced with concrete posts and kick boards, amazing service and couldn't recommend highly enough, attention to detail was perfect, was great to have Dean and the Team from Ground Designs working on our garden for the time they were here. Will 100% invite them back for future work and recommend to anyone requiring their services. Much appreciated. Darran, Kirsty and the boys.

Replacement of patio and installation of paths to shed and summer house

Verified Review

Dean and his team of Owen and Luke worked tirelessly to complete the project before Christmas to a very high standard. We are delighted with the replacement patio and the excellent new paths now allow us to reach our shed and summer house in all weathers. Dean and his team tidied everything up after each day and were a pleasure to have around. We would have no hesitation in recommending Ground Designs.
